Meaning of Sigma Beta Delta
Sigma (Σ) is the initial letter of the Greek word ΣΟΦΙΑ, which means wisdom. Wisdom is knowledge gained over time, analyzed and used with discernment. Wisdom is not merely information but allows one to acknowledge information, consider its validity and relevance, and then incorporate into one’s own life what is appropriate.
Beta (Β) is the initial letter of the Greek word ΒΕΒΑΙΟΣ, which signifies honor. Honor is a personal quality of the highest value. Honorable persons are held in esteem, considered to be trustworthy, and admired by others because they live a life that is worthy of such recognition. Honorable persons have chosen to live a life that is bound by integrity and ethical decision-making. They respect others and are willing to provide leadership to the benefit of humankind.
Delta (Δ) is the initial letter of the Greek word ΔΙΩΚΩ, which signifies the pursuit of meaningful aspirations. Persons of wisdom and honor must aspire to a course to achieve their objectives, for goals without action are no more fulfilling than action without goals. To aspire toward the fulfillment of one’s goals to serve humankind and develop personally and professionally will lead to a life of meaning and satisfaction.
